CRI Presents at 2016 Institute for Healthcare Advancement Health Literacy Conference

CRI Senior Director for Health Literacy and Research Andrew Pleasant, Ph.D., CRI Senior Program Manager Chuck Palm, M.P.H., C.P.H., and CRI Program and Evaluation Manager Ana Lucero-Liu, Ph.D.,  presented information about CRI’s health literacy research and practice at the Institute for Healthcare Advancement’s 15th Annual Health Literacy Conference. Andrew presented a session about how CRI uses formative research to successfully tailor the Canyon Ranch Institute Life Enhancement Program (CRI LEP) to local communities. The CRI team also presented three posters:  how the CRI LEP uses health literacy to improve health and health system performance; how CRI developed and uses an easy-to-use self-report measure of health literacy with multiple diverse populations; and how the CRI Healthy Community program advances family and community health in low-income communities through nutrition, stress management, physical activity, and gardening.
